Government information and advice.
Repeat prescriptions can be requested in the following ways:
Whatever method you use, please allow at least 72 hours for your prescription to be processed, we will also post FP10 prescription forms to patients that provide a stamped addressed envelope and arrangements can be made for prescriptions to be sent to the pharmacy of your choice. Please advise the dispensary when registering of your preference.
Patients on repeat medication may be asked to see a doctor, clinical pharmacist or practice nurse at least once a year to review medication.
You will be notified if you need to make an appointment.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
We have noticed an increasing number of patients registering for Pharmacy2U delivery services.
Please note, for our dispensing patients this may have unwanted effects on other services, as you will no longer be able to collect ANY medications from our dispensary. Therefore if you come and see a doctor, we will be obliged to either send the prescription to Pharmacy2 U or give you a prescription which will need to be taken to a pharmacy. We have had several patients taken unawares about this as apparently Pharmacy2U does not make this clear.
If you require your prescriptions to be delivered for any reason, we run a delivery service, please ask.
Remember: you only have a surgery at all because we can provide a dispensary service, without this the surgery would close.
Unused prescription medicines cost the NHS across the UK over £300 million every year. Remember, only order what you need and help us make more of your local NHS.
Here’s how you can help
Remember unused medicines cannot be recycled. Even if you never open them, once medicines have left the dispensary or pharmacy, they cannot be recycled or used by anyone else
Please take your unused medicines to the Pharmacy for safe disposal. NEVER dispose of your unused or unwanted medicines down the toilet.
